What is it about Australian soaps? Anyone else watch this show?
Would that be The Sullivans?
Nope. This one is called A Place to Call Home.
Sorry...tho I thought you'd like The Sullivans - historically...it was the first Oz soap on UK TV, almost Crown Court era.
UK TV 1980
6am Programmes for Schools and Colleges, including @ 7.30am 'Understanding Our Bodies Ourselves...'
1.30pm The Sullivans/Crown Court

What, no Blue Peter? Or does that fall into the 6:00 am block?
um yeah, I'll re-configure, shuzz...
Anyway, I better spend all weekend watching your series after that spoutage of total irrelevant garbage - from me.
Some things never change :/
Don't be silly. I discovered Australian soaps when I was living in, of all places, Berlin. We got the SSVC (Services Sound and Vision Corporation) in our barracks. That's the service that - at the time - brought UK television to Her Majesty's troops stationed abroad. Home & Away* and Neighbors, circa '89-'93, along with, of course, East Enders, Coronation Street, etc. etc. I missed it all so much when I got back to the States.
* I still remember the kerfuffle caused when Debra Lawrance replaced Vanessa Downing as Pippa on Home & Away.
